"For the sound growth of the gaming industry. For GameCube." - reads a message from Capcom's Production Studio 4. At a press conference in Japan, Capcom unveiled 5 stunning new games under development exclusively for GameCube. The games, directed by five of the company's top designers, include Dead Phoenix, Killer 7, Product Number 3, Resident Evil 4, and Viewtiful Joe. Today's announcement is a profound stepping stone in Nintendo's mission to attract mature gamers to GameCube... all of the announced games target an older audience. 

4th Production Studio's Message...

"For the sound growth of the gaming industry."
"For GameCube."

These words describe our initial thoughts. In an industry where you create to amuse and entertain, do you sense a crisis about the industry's continuing regression of excitement and stimulation? We believe that the regression of excitement is solely the fault and responsibility of we creators. By the same token, we believe it is also our mission and responsibility to create something that is "worth seeing" for the user. In a market that has become prosaic with character dependent games and sequel games, we, the 4th Production Studio of Capcom, would like to take this opportunity to announce 5 new and exciting games for the GameCube. The games you'll see on this page are all the works of our unique and talented (but slightly twisted) directors.


From the above, it appears that Production's mission is very much in synch with Nintendo's. Without further pause, we present the 5 games announced for Nintendo GameCube by Capcom.

VIEWTIFUL JOE : by Hideki Kamiya : Spring 2003

Described as a beautiful side-scrolling action game, Viewtiful Joe is "like nothing you've ever seen before." The protagonist, Viewtiful Joe, is a superhero that naturally fights beautifully. The game will employ some unusual controls involving a "slow" feature where enemies can be bashed clear across the screen and "zoom in" where a jab can be made lethal.
